Kellogg Board Fellows presents a significant opportunity for students to gain experience with board governance while contributing to the advancement of nonprofit partners. Unlike internships that focus on day-to- day operations in a nonprofit, this program exposes students to the dynamics of board governance in nonprofit organizations. Fellows serve as ex-officio board members for a nonprofit partner while completing courses in board governance at Kellogg. Each fellow also completes a strategic project designed to leverage their skills and advance the work of their nonprofit partner. Two-year MBA students must apply for the program during their first year of study at Kellogg. All applicants must not be graduating within the next two years to be reviewed for admission. Eligible students include those enrolled in the Full-Time MBA Program (2Y Program), MMM Program, Evening/Weekend Program, JD-MBA Program and MD-MBA Program at Northwestern University.
Fellows experience the program through three components: Academics, Board Service and Community. Each component has specific responsibilities.
